Crowdsourcing on the IdeaScale platform is now open for AALL members to submit program ideas for the 2017 Annual Meeting in Austin. The platform can be accessed here: AALL Annual Meeting Program Ideas.
Please note that you’ll need to create an IdeaScale account to participate (even if you used the platform last year).
Submitting ideas to IdeaScale won’t obligate you to propose an actual program (which is a separate process). Crowdsourcing is merely intended to help the Annual Meeting Planning Committee (AMPC) determine what subjects will be designated as “must have topics.” Feel free to submit ideas even if they’re in a very initial state: a word, a run-on sentence, a list; it’s all alright, alright, alright (as the locals might say).
While you are at the site, please also vote on the ideas already present. The AMPC will use member voting to help determine the must-have program list.
Let’s make sure there’s some great, Texas-sized research/instruction/public services programming come next July!
